As the pandemic eased, cinephiles returned to the cinemas anew. The Carlos Chan Ka Lok and Kathy Yuen (Tong Yee) starred Emperor Motion Picture LEGALLY DECLARED DEAD (SEI YUN MO HOR YI) was recently released. The response was better than expected. Since opening last Thursday it has made over HK$ 2.7 million at the box office. The cast and the crew would not be more excited. Ka Lok said, "I know that cinemas still had to isolate seats and many had discounts to attract customers. In other words, actually our movie should already have HK$ 4 million at the box office. It is a very encouraging number." He admitted that despite how weak the economy was, his friends still bought tickets instead of using coupons to show their support. He was rather moved.
Tong Yee also responded, "I truly was very happy to hear this news. Actually it's not just me, even when my Mommy went for tea she heard the neighbors talked about this movie. Originally she didn't watch suspense horror films, now she says that she wants to support me at the movies. I told her, 'That's right, you go and see how people torture your daughter.'"
